EEPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OP STEEETS. 

Thinking that the citizens of Andover would like to know 
where their Highway money has. been expended, I submit 
the following : 

March 16, 1891, we began work on the top of" Chandler's 
hill," taking off about two feet of sand, and carting it into 
the hollow beyond ; and then replaced it with Red Spring 
gravel, grading the hill from the old grist-mill nearly to our 
Red Spring pit. About the time this was finished our stone- 
crusher came. The first stones broken with that machine 
were put near the residence of B. F. Smith, and we graded 
from there to the foot of the hill, near Cooper's pond. The 
street being wide it necessitated a heavy grade at the centre, 
running from seven to eleven inches, thus using 630 yards 
of stone. The largest day's work being 6T yards, at a cost 
of fifty-eight (58) cents per yard. Owing to our screen not 
arriving on time the crushed stone was left uncovered some 
weeks, and at the request of the Chairman of Selectmen it 
was covered with loose gravel from the Belknap pit ; it has 
since been covered with Red Spring gravel, and needs only 
to be ridden over to be appreciated. 

From there we went to Brook Street, beginning at the 
Essex Street end, and stoning a little more than half way, 
the remainder was gravelled to Central Street ; the sidewalk 
also on the west side of this street was gravelled. 

We next went to Chestnut Street, stoned the street and 
graded the sidewalk. We then stoned Punchard Avenue 
from Chestnut to Summer Street. Turning up Summer 
Street we put several loads of broken stone in the hollow 
near B. F. Ward well's house. 

From there we went to the hill west of the Morse place ; 
that we ploughed, down some three feet, taking off over three 
hundred loads, and putting them into the hollow ; after this 



26 

was done we put the road machine on, and graded from 
there nearly to the North Andover line. 

From there we went back to the Red Spring, starting up 
the crusher again, and stoned Marland Street from opposite 
Peter D. Smith's house to within a few rods of the Marland 
Village bridge, grading the sidewalk the entire length of said 
street, and the east side of Cuba Street. For these streets 
over 2860 loads of material were run through the crasher. 

We next moved the crasher to Ballard Yale, to land 
owned by Mrs. Morgan ; here we found an excellent bank, 
free of charge. 630 loads were here taken out, and placed 
near the railroad depot and across the bridge by Haynes's 
store ; also near the Methodist church and on Lowell Street, 
the remainder on the road leading from the Nathan Clark 
place towards Andover Centre. On River Street we built 
thirty-five rods of new sidewalk ; one also has been built in 
front of the face-wall of the new school-house, and on the 
opposite side of the same street. We also gravelled forty- 
two rods on Tewksbury Street. A piece of sidewalk was 
built in front of the new parsonage. A catch-basin was 
built and eighty feet of pipe laid to carry the water to the 
river, Superintendent Shaw furnishing the pipe from the 
street to the river. 

The crusher was then moved to James Toye's land, where 
510 loads of stone were broken, and placed on River Road. 
From there we came to George Goldsmith's pit, where 298 
loads were broken, and placed on the road leading from the 
E. Luscomb place to N. G. Abbott's house. The stone taken 
from both pits furnished material for one mile of road. 
Some thirty rods of road was gravelled near the John Hardy 
place on the River Road. 198 loads of gravel were placed 
on the road near the Haigh place. 

From there w r e came to Mooar and McCollum's pit ;• here 
we took out and crushed over 500 loads of stone, which were 
put where needed on the road between B. Boynton's and the 
river bridge in Frye Village. We also repaired a place on 
Union Street near the Lawrence line. Twenty-three rods of 



27 

sidewalk has been gravelled, from the Battles place eastward. 
About twenty-five rods of new sidewalk has been built be- 
ginning at the Rattles place and running westward ; also 
fifty-seven rods of new sidewalk, beginning at J. W. Mooar's 
paint-shop, running westward. From Mooar's pit the crusher 
was moved back home to the Red Spring, and has since 
been boarded in. 

The road has been graded and bushes cut from the old 
railroad to North Andover line. The bushes have been cut 
from the Lawrence line to the Collin's place on the old 
railroad. Boston Street has been graded from the hill to 
Abbott Street, — nearly one mile. 1162 loads of gravel have 
been put on the Turnpike, beginning below Justin Carter's 
house, and grading toward Andover. 

The culvert in the hollow near the Job Abbott place has 
been raised two feet, and lengthened twelve feet at the north 
end, and the hollow graded to correspond. This is one of 
the twenty-eight culverts that were taken up and rebuilt, 
costing from 13.00 to 150.00 each. 

Railing put up at a cost of $279.72 in the following places: 
Frye Village, on Harding Street, at the Buxton place, and 
below the latter place near the town line, and at Haggetts 
Pond ; most of the railing has been painted. 

Fifty-eight loads of gravel were put on Lowell Road near 
Follansbee's, and sixty-seven loads on the road between R. 
Williamson's house and Buchan's corner. 

In the Cape District, $207.00 has been spent in grading. 

High Street has been stoned from Elm Street to a point 
near Baldwin's house. This street is now stoned through- 
out. We have removed all the pipes but one from the gut- 
ters, taken away the bank at William Brown's house, built 
a retaining wall and a sidewalk, and widened the street at 
that end, Mr. Jewett kindly giving the land therefor ; and if 
the gutters were paved down the hill at the foot of the street 
it would come very near suiting me. 

Work was then begun on upper Bartlet Street, and when 
that job was about half done, Main Street was turned over to 



28 

me to repair the dangerous places caused by the construction 
of the Electric Railway, consequently Bartlet Street was left 
unfinished, and we began filling the gutters on Main Street, 
which have been filled from Morton Street to Edward Tay- 
lor's house ; also, from Stimpson's bridge to Frye Village 
Square. The gutters have been cleaned out on Main, School, 
Central, Brook, Essex, Pearson, Park, and Florence Streets. 

About $60.00 has been expended on BardwelPs Hill, and 
$18.00 near Dennis O'Brien's houses on School Street. Fifty 
feet of twelve inch pipe has been laid under the street near 
E. H. Barnard's house. 

Length of gutters filled, 210 rods. 

Length of roads stoned, two miles and 261 rods. 

Length of roads gravelled, six miles. 

Sidewalks gravelled, one mile, and 130 rods. 

New sidewalk built, 130 rods. 

The bushes have been cut on all the roads north of the 
Main road leading to Lowell, and west of the West Parish 
Church. 

The trees have all been trimmed from the Lawrence line 
to Salem Street, the Electric Railroad Company and New 
England Telephone and Telegraph Company paying for said 
work. 

And last, but not least, the willows near Mark Holt's house 
have been cut, so that the electric light can shine in upon 
him. Two chestnut trees on School Street have been dug 
up, and three trees on Main Street removed. 

In reading over this report, I find I have omitted mention 
of several jobs of minor importance, but I trust enough has 
already been given to satisfy every fair-minded citizen of 
Andover, that every dollar of the road money has not been 
spent within one-half mile of the Town House, as a promi- 
nent citizen stated to me last year. 
Yours respectfully, 

JOSEPH T, LOVEJOY, 

SupU of Streets.

R E R O R T 



OF THE 



Selectmen and Assessors, 



SCHOOLS AND SCHOOL-HOUSES. 

The School Committee ask for appropriations as follows : 
Schools, 115000 ; School-houses, repairs, $1500 ; School- 
books and supplies, 11000 ; Abbott Village School-house, 
$10000 ; Punchard School-house, 18000 ; grading at Ballard 
Yale School-house, $150. We refer to the Report of the 
School Committee for information relating to their de- 
partment. 

HIGHWAYS, BRIDGES, AND SIDEWALKS. 

The Superintendent of Streets gives a detailed statement 
of his road work in his Report on pages 25-28. 

The travel on our roads constantly increases, and better 
roads are needed and demanded. The Street Department 
is now well supplied with machinery and teams for making 
good roads, and liberal appropriations ought to be made 
therefor. 

The laying of the electric railway on Main Street has 
practically narrowed that most important thoroughfare of the 
town, and made necessary a widening of the driveway, which 
will cost much money to properly complete, 

Another improvement of Main Street must be made in the 
near future. The Essex Turnpike — now Main Street — was 
laid out sixty-six feet wide in 1806. Abutters have en- 



45 

croaclied upon and fenced in portions of the original lay-out, 
and that ground must be recovered, as every inch of the 
sixty-six feet width is needed for the public use. 

We recommend the appropriation of $ 1 0000 for Highways 
and $1200 for Sidewalks. 



REMOVING SNOW. 

The 1891 appropriation was insufficient. The amount of 
snow that may fall and block our ways being an unknown 
quantity at town meeting time, it will be well to have the 
appropriation large enough. We advise $800. 

TOWN HOKSEP, 

The Town now owns six horses — three teams for road 
work. We refer to the " Earnings of Horses " account on 
page 24, for a showing to their credit for the past year. We 
repeat that we believe the horses to be a good investment 
for the Town. The town teams are ready for use at all 
times and seasons. Under the old system the road work 
was subject to the convenience of private owners of teams. 
We recommend an appropriation of $3000 for horses and 
drivers. 

PAY OP TOWN 0FFI0EES. 

An appropriation of $5000 will be sufficient for this 
account. 

TOWN HOUSE. 

The Town House is now well fitted for the business carried 
on therein. All the rooms on the ground floor being in daily 
use, the running expenses of heating, lighting, and janitor 
work are large. A considerable amount must be expended 
in repairs each year. Much of the expense is repaid in 
rents — $791 last year. We recommend an appropriation of 
$1500 for Town House. 



46 

FIRE DEPARTMENT. 
The Engineers ask for appropriations as follows : running 
expenses — $2500; new hose, $500. 

INSURANCE. 
The usual amount, $300, will be enough for renewals of 
policies the current year. 

HAT SCALES. 
This useful and profitable piece of town property will need 
$50 for running expenses and possible repairs. 

STREET LIGHTING. 

In obedience to instructions voted at the special town 
meeting held September 21st, 1891, the Selectmen and the 
Street Lighting Committee made a new contract with the 
Andover Electric Company ; the main points and conditions 
of which are as follows : 

First, That said Electric Company agrees to furnish thirty- 
one arc lamps of 1200-candle power each, and sixty-eight 
incandescent street lamps of 25-candle power each. 

Second, That said Electric Company will, at its own risk 
and expense, keep said lamps in operation so as to produce 
light at their respective capacities as aforesaid, and during 
the hours herein-after mentioned, for the term of three years 
from the fifth day of October, 1891. 

Third, Said Company further agrees that it will furnish, set 
up, and operate as aforesaid, any number of lamps which the 
Town may require during the term of this contract, beyond 
said minimum number of thirty-one arc lamps and sixty- 
eight incandescent lamps, at the following prices ; viz. one 
hundred and five dollars each per year for arc lamps of 
1200-candle power capacity, and twenty-five dollars each per 
year for incandescent lamps of 25-candle power capacity, as 
above specified. 

Fourth, In consideration of which said Town of Andover 
agrees to pay to said Electric Company for said lights (31 



arc, and 68 incandescent), to be lighted from dark to day- 
light every dark night, the sum of forty-five hundred dollars 
(•$4500) per year, payment to be made monthly at pro rata 
rates on the regular town pay-days. It being the true intent 
and meaning of this clause, that electric lights shall be fur- 
nished within the limits of the town whenever the town is 
not well lighted by the moon. 

PRINTING AND STATIONERY. 
This expense necessarily increases : the various reports 
grow larger, and more stationery is required, year by year. 
$1000 will be sufficient for the current year. 

STATE AID AND MILITARY AID. 

The last appropriation for State Aid, $ 1400, and the ex- 
penditure therefor exactly balanced. The same amount will 
probably be sufficient for this year; #and $ 900 for Military 
Aid. All of the State Aid, and one half of the Military Aid, 
returns to the town treasury. 

MEMORIAL DAY. 

1200, the usual amount, as for years past, is recom- 
mended, and that it be expended under direction of Post 99, 
G.A.R. 

SPRING GROVE CEMETERY. 
The Committee in charge ask for 1200 and the money 
received from sales of lots, grass, etc. 

STATE AND 00UNTY TAXES. 
Nobody knows how much the town will be required to 
pay on these accounts. We can only estimate. As shown 
elsewhere, the last State Tax was less and the County Tax 
more than the appropriation. We advise the same amounts 
as last year, — $6000 for each tax. 



48 



DISCOUNT ON TAXES. 

A discount of six per cent was allowed on taxes with 
satisfactory results for many years prior to 1891, in which 
year a four per cent discount was voted. The results of the 
four per cent rate were not satisfactory. A large amount of 
taxes which doubtless would have been paid on a larger 
discount, remained unpaid several months later, and the 
Town had to borrow money earlier than usual in conse- 
quence. We advise that five per cent discount be allowed 
this year and an appropriation of $3000 made therefor. 

ABATEMENT AND EEMISSION OF TAXES. 
•1300 will be sufficient for this account. 

INTEREST ON NOTES, BONDS, AND PUNDS. 
$3500 will be needed for these accounts. 

WATERWORKS. 
The Commissioners ask for the following amounts : Bond 
payments, $4500 ; Use of Hydrants and Water in Town 
Buildings, $3000; Service-pipe, $1000; Reservoir, $1500; 
Sinking Fund, $150 ; Maintenance, $3500 ; Extension in Frye 
Village, $1500 ; Extension on Washington Avenue, $3800 ; 
Extension of Street Lines, $1000 ; New Boiler, $2100. 

MISCELLANEOUS. 
This appropriation is intended to cover all expenditures 
and liabilities not ofherwise provided for. Unforseen con- 
tingencies are liable to arise, suits for damages, etc. We 
advise an allowance of $1500. 

THE FINANCIAL YEAR. 
At the last annual meeting the Town authorized the Select- 
men and Treasurer to have a regular pay-day in February, 
but omitted to authorize the Treasurer to borrow money for 
said pay-day. The town accounts being closed in January, 



49 

with most of the appropriations nearly or quite exhausted, 
the February pay-day is the beginning of the new financial 
year, so far as payments are concerned, and in order to pro- 
vide money therefor, we advise that the annual vote autho- 
rizing the Treasurer to hire money be amended so as to 
provide for this. 

We refer to the Treasurer's Report for information relating 
to the financial affairs of the town. 

The special town meeting of September 21st, 1891, appro- 
priated 11450 for school-house ventilation, $950 for street 
lighting (additional), and $2000 for highways (additional), 
in all $4400, making the total appropriation for the year, 
$91,950. Of this amount there are unexpended balances 
aggregating $6539.30. 

MEMORIAL HALL. 

We are informed by the Trustees that the funds available 
for running expenses are insufficient to fully pay for lighting 
the building. We recommend that an appropriation of $175 
be made therefor.

Overseers' Report. 



The past year was an unusually eventful one in the Poor 
Department, both at the Almshouse and outside. 

Superintendent Walter B. Allen died October 31st, having 
faithfully served the Town in his office twelve years and 
seven months. We deemed it advisable to retain Mrs. Allen 
as matron, and to that purpose appointed Milo H. Gould 
Superintendent for the remainder of Mr. Allen's unexpired 
term. By this arrangement the internal affairs of the house 
were continued without disturbance of the long-existing good 
order and pleasant relations, and also gives us ample time 
to make such further arrangements as may become necessary 
in the near future. 

The business affairs of the Almshouse and Farm have been 
well conducted, as heretofore; the house continues to be a 
model of neatness and good keeping throughout ; the farm 
produced good crops, which largely aided in paying the 
expenses. 

The ordinary running expenses of the Almshouse for the 
coming year will probably be about the same as the last, but 
the repair account must be larger. Some floors must be 
renewed and other woodwork repaired. The heating boilers 
have been in use seventeen years, and are worn nearly to the 
danger point, and must be replaced by new ones. 

Two of the farm buildings have been re-shingled, the bill 
therefor being brought over. New boilers, woodwork repairs, 
and bills due will require an appropriation of $1000 on 
repairs account. 



58 

We have to report an overdraw in the Relief Out account. 
A large part of this was in 1890 hills from cities and towns, 
received after the accounts closed. More than $500 of the 
1890 appropriation of -$4500 was not expended. The appro- 
priation for 1891 being only 84000, was largely insufficient. 

The expense on Relief Out account will probably increase. 
The cost of pauperism to the State grows larger every year, 
and in order to relieve the State, laws have been passed and 
amended which compel cities and towns to bear a larger 
proportion of the burdens than formerly. 

The tramp nuisance decreased in quantity if not in quality : 
sixteen hundred and eighteen in 1890, eleven hundred and 
fifty-three last year. May their tribe continue to decrease 
to the vanishing point.

Twentieth Annual Report 



OF THE 



Trustees of Memorial Hall 



The circulation of over twenty-one thousand volumes 
during the year, as reported by the librarian, together with 
the large and constant use of the newspaper?, and magazines 
of the reading-room, is sufficient evidence of the continued 
usefulness of Andover's free public library among all classes 
of the community. 

The need of more shelf-room for the accommodation of 
new books has been met by the addition of three alcoves, 
with a capacity of about thirty-six hundred volumes. 

The Superintendent of Public Schools and the Principal 
of the Punchard Free School have been asked to suggest 
titles of books helpful to scholars in connection with their 
current studies in literature or science, an arrangement 
which should tend to the selection of a certain proportion of 
volumes specially interesting and useful to the youth of our 
town, always the most numerous and important class of the 
patrons of a public library. 

The Trustees are happy 10 report that the hour of our 
deliverance from the nuisance of dimly burning, ill-smelling 
kerosene lights, so long tolerated in the Library, is nigh at 
hand. The use of electricity in the alcoves for the last few 
months has proved so satisfactory that a contract has been 
authorized witli the Electric Light Company for wiring the 
remainder of the building. The current expense of running 
the electric system, including a much needed light in the 
portico, is estimated at two hundred dollars per annum. 



80 

An article will be placed in the Town Warrant for the appro- 
priation of that amount, and the Trustees respectfully but 
earnestly ask that the recommendation of the Selectmen be 
adopted by the Town Meeting. They feel sure that the 
introduction of electric light in Memorial Hall will commend 
itself to the judgment of all citizens as necessary, not only 
for the reduction of the fire risk, but for the protection of 
the eyes and lungs of those who frequent the Library in the 
evening.

REPORT 



To the Citizens of Andover : 

Your Water Commissioners herewith submit their third 
annual report for the year ending January 12th, 1892. 

In presenting this report we feel gratified at the very favor- 
able exhibit of your system, and that the prospects are so 
flattering for its future growth and prosperity. 

The receipts from water rates show an increase of over 
70 per cent above last year's, and while it is not expected 
that this phenomenal growth will continue it is but reason- 
able to expect a steady gain, from year to year, in the reve- 
nue, until all on the lines of pipe become water takers. 

The following analysis of the water by the State Board of 
Health will be of interest. In comparison with one in 1885, 
the quality is even better than at that time.

4 REPORT OF WATER COMMISSIONERS. 

The expenditures for the year have been very limited and 
embrace only such as seemed actually necessary to keep 
the works in proper shape and condition. 

No appropriation was made last year for extension of street 
lines, but we deemed it advisable to use the proceeds of ma- 
terial sold to make a few where the necessity for such seemed 
most urgent. A new line was laid on Locke Street from 
Main to School, the lines extended on Washington and Wal- 
nut Avenues and on Tewksbury Street in Ballardvale. 

The water was drawn from the reservoir last spring, and 
the basin thoroughly cleaned and flushed. Judging from the 
clean appearance this time, it will not need it again for sev- 
eral years. No defect whatever in the structure, and every- 
thing about it w 7 as in A 1 condition. 

Number of applications received as per last report, . 329 
Number received this year, ..... 155 



Total to date, 484 

The cost for service pipe is as follows :

Amount collected and due from owners of buildings, 13,364 38 
Total cost to Town to date, . . . . $6,062 80 
There is now due from different parties about $300. 

This very important work thus far .has been done by Mr. 
George Goodhue and has been very satisfactory in every re- 
spect. It is very probable that his services will be secured 
another year.

Treasurer, $5,349 32

REPORT OF WATER COMMISSIONERS. 

We have made during the year final settlements and paid 
all bills belonging to the construction account with the single 
exception of the one for land taken for reservoir purposes ; 
this we have made every effort to settle, but without success, 
and whatever may be the ultimate result, we are conscious 
that it is from no neglect or indifference on our part that 
this, like all the others, has not reached a peaceable solution. 

We have heretofore refrained from making recommenda- 
tions or asking for an appropriation to extend street lines, 
preferring rather to wait until the system, as originally in- 
tended should be completed and then the need of such could 
be more easily determined. It is now very evident that a 
small sum could be judiciously expended in this direction and 
we recommend that the Town appropriate $1,000 for this pur- 
pose. We also recommend that there be appropriated, $3500 
for maintenance, $1000 for service pipe, $1500 for reservoir, 
and $150 for sinking fund. 

The Superintendent in his report lias called our attention 
to the necessity of a new boiler at the pumping station. We 
were already well aware since the works were in running or- 
der that a station situated similar to Andover should be pro- 
vided with two boilers, in fact Mr. Blake recommended two in 
the beginning but only one was bought as a matter of economy. 
It is well understood that any boiler is liable to accident and 
when dependance is placed entirely on one to supply this 
Town with water it is a little risky, to say the least, and we 
do not think it wise to allow it to exist any longer. We 
therefore would recommend that the Town appropriate the 
sum of $2,100 for this purpose. 

The works have run very smoothly and much credit is due 
the Superintendent for the ability and good judgment exer- 
cised in the many difficult matters with which he has had to 
deal. We refer you to his report in which you will find details 
of the management of the system and much other useful 
information. 

At the annual meeting held March 2, 1891, Articles 20, 
21, and 22, all relating to extension of lines of water pipe 



6 REPORT OF WATER COMMISSIONERS. 

were by vote of the Town referred to the Board of Water 
Commissioners, they to report thereon. We submit the 
following : 

Art. 20. "To see if the town will authorize and instruct 
the Board of Water Commissioners to extend the line of wa- 
ter pipe from its present terminus in Frye Tillage along Main 
and Union Streets to the boundary line between Andover and 
Lawrence and appropriate a sum of money therefor." The 
distance from its present terminus near the Ink Factory to 
the boundary line, following Main and Union Streets, is 1800 
feet. A six inch pipe would answer all requirements for do- 
mestic uses and fire protection. The estimated cost would 
not exceed 81,500. We are of the opinion that this line 
should be extended and recommend that the Town appropri- 
ate the above sum for that purpose. 

Art. 21. '-To see if the Town will authorize and instruct 
the Board of Water Commissioners to extend the line of wa- 
ter pipe from its present terminus on Elm Street along said 
street to a point therein near M. C. Andrews' barn, and ap- 
propriate a sum of money therefor." The present terminus 
of this line is near the junction of Washington Avenue, with 
this street the amount of pipe called for in this article is 
about 2400 feet of 6-inch pipe, and the cost including an es- 
timate for rock would be not far from $3,800. Nearly, if not 
all on the line would be water takers, and one would require 
a large amount. It appears to us that the request for fire pro- 
tection and water for domestic and other purposes is reason- 
able and worthy of consideration. There is no reason why 
this extension should not be made unless it be the cost and 
that is hardly sufficient to justify the Town in refusing it. 
We believe it should be done and recommend that the Town 
appropriate a sufficient sum for that purpose. 

Art. 22. ,; To see if the Town will authorize and instruct 
the Board of Water Commissioners to extend the line of wa- 
ter pipe from the Pumping Station along the highway to the 
premises of Charles I. Hood in the Bailey District, and ap- 
propriate a sum of money therefor." This extension would 



REPORT OF WATER COMMISSIONERS. I 

commence on the line of pipe near the Pumping Station fol- 
lowing the Lowell road to the corner near Bellevue Grove, 
then by the highway on the west side of the Pond crossing the 
Lowell and Lawrence railroad near the house of the late Jed- 
ediah Burtt and following the highway pas-t the Bardwell 
Place to the top of Hardy's Hill, so called, to the junction of 
streets near Mrs. Wm. Hardy's, a distance of 8702 feet from 
place of beginning. In order to furnish fire protection and 
allow for possible connections that might' hereafter.be made, 
an 8-inch pipe would be required for this part of the line, 
from there the line would follow the road leading past the 
Bailey schoolhouse to the residence of Mr. Hood. A 6-inch 
pipe from Mrs. Hardy's to this point would be ample for all 
purposes. The distance is 7812 feet, making the whole dis- 
tance, 16,514 feet or nearly 3 1-8 miles. 

COST. 
The cost as estimated from the expense to 
ent system, would be as follows : 
323.4 tons pipe, at 130.00 per ton, 
4.1 tons specials at $56.00 per ton, 
Laying 8702 feet, 8-inch pipe at 29 cents, 
Laying 7812 feet, 6-inch pipe at 25 cents, . 
7 Hydrants at $35.00 each all set, . 
6 8-inch Gates at #30.00 each all set, . 
4 6-inch Gates at $20.00 each all set, 
Estimate of, at least, 600 yards of rock at 

$3.50 per yard, .... 

Making total cost of 

THE ELEVATIONS ARE: 

High water in Reservoir, 308 feet above mean level. 

Pumping Station, 117 feet above mean level. 

Wall at Mrs. Hardy's 225 feet above mean level. 

At C. I. Hood's, 259 feet or an elevation of 

the water in Reservoir of nearly 50 feet above Mr. Hood's.

8 REPORT OF WATER COMMISSIONERS. 

In regard to the expense of making this extension being 
partly borne by Mr. Hood, as might be inferred from the re- 
marks of his counsel, Mr. Lilley, at our town meeting, we sim- 
ply say, that both Mr. Hood and Mr. Lilley have been request- 
ted to make some definite statement or proprosition in regard 
to this matter, but we have received nothing from either 
of them that would, in any way, indicate their willingness to 
assist, or bear any part of the cost, whatever. It is hard 
to estimate the annual income ; we are unable to find any 
along the line who wish to take the water if the pipe was laid, 
possibly there might be two or three who would do so in the 
future, but it is very evident that all the income at present 
would come from Mr. Hood. We are therefore unanimous 
in our opinion that the Town ought not to make this exten- 
sion.

16 REPORT OF WATER COMMISSIONERS. 



SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT. 



To the Board of Water Commissioners : 

I herewith present my report for the year ending Jan- 
uary 12th, 1892. 

Notwithstanding that the water in the pond fell to about 
fourteen inches below high water level, it has been clear and 
wholesome. An analysis. shows an improvement over that of 
previous years. The uncovered shores were clean and showed 
very little vegetable growth. 

The reservoir was drawn off and sides and bottom thor- 
oughly cleaned May 22d and 23d. It was found to be in 
splendid condition, there being only a very small amount of 
sediment and no evidence of pollution. A few pavements 
had been started by the frost, but were easily replaced. Dur- 
ing the progress of the work the tow f n was supplied with 
water directly from the pumps. Thanks are due to Mr. Geo. 
E. Farkhurst of the Complete Combustion Company for tak- 
ing charge of the pumps while an examination of the reser- 
voir was made by the superintendent. 

During the year there has been 1930.4 feet of 6-inch, and 
1859 feet of 4-inch pipe laid ; five 6-inch and three 4-inch 
gates and five hydrants set, as follows : . 

On Walnut Avenue, from Maple Avenue to J. M. Brad- 
ley's, 536 feet of 6-inch pipe, one 6-inch gate, one hydrant. 

On Cuba Street, from dead end to John Hiekey's, 96 foet 
of 6-inch pipe. 

On Highland Road, from Salem Street to Catherine Nolan's, 
473 feet of 6-inch pipe, one 6-inch gate. 

At Smith & Dove's, Abbott Village (private line), 677 
feet of 6-inch, 260 feet of 4-inch pipe, two 6-inch gates and 
two hydrants.

At Smith & Dove's, Frye Village (private line), 80 feet 
6-inch, 12 feet 4-inch pipe, one 6-inch and one 4-inch gate, 
one hydrant. 

At Tver Rubber Co.'s, changed fire pipe, laid 54.5 feet of 
6 inch pipe, 38 feet of 4 inch pipe. 

On Tewksbury Street, Ballard vale, from Oak Street to 
Chester Street, 688 feet of 4-inch, 12 feet of 6-inch pipe, one 
hydrant. 

On Locke Street, from Main to School Streets, 561 feet of 
4-inch pipe, two 4-inch gates. 

On Washington Avenue, from Elm Street 300 feet south- 
erly, 300 feet of 4-inch pipe. 

There have been received 156 applications for service pipe, 
two of which were for fire pipes and one on private line, mak- 
ing 153 services owned by the town. The following schedule 
shows work in this department for the year, and total services

In addition to the above, there have been laid and charged 
to service pipe, 3-4 inch pipes on dead ends, at Morton Street, 
Abbott Street, and Andover Street, Ballardvale. These 
pipes were laid with a jet at the end, the object being to 
create a circulation. 

We are now providing water for 1 hotel, 1 public stable, 
3 buildings for manufacturing purposes, 16 public buildings, 
17 stores and offices, 24 boarding houses, 3 laundries, 5

Had the town paid the usual rates for hydrant service, 
water for fountains, public buildings, etc., the income would 
have more than paid interest and maintenance ; in other 
words, the works are practically self-sustaining. 

There have been 42 meters set, namely : one 2-inch Gem, 
two 1-inch Thomson, twenty-one 5-8 inch Thomson, one 5-8 
inch Hersey, and seventeen 1-2 inch Crown. Total number 
of meters in service January 12, 1892, 122. The following

The buildings at the pumping station are in good repair ; 
there has been no outlay on that account. Although there 
have been a number of repairs made on the pumps, the only 
outlay has been a few dollars for material, the work being 
done by the regular attendants. The pumps were shut down 
three times during the year for repairs, but are now in ex- 
cellent condition. An examination of the annexed records 
will show an improvement over last year. It will be seen 
that we have consumed 100 tons of coal during the year.

REPORT OF WATER COMMISSIONERS. 



of boiler is about 45,000,000 foot pounds for 100 pounds of 
coal, at which rate we would have used 160 tons of coal to 
pump same amount of water. On this basis, a saving of 
$300.00 in fuel lias been effected. 

With ever-increasing work to be done, and the usual liabil- 
ity to accidents, we are running an unreasonable risk in 
having only one boiler ; and I would recommend that a dupli- 
cate boiler be set during the coming year. At best it will 
be but a year^or two when another boiler will be an impera- 
tive need. . Two propositions have been received from the 
Complete Combustion Co., of which the more favorable is as 
follows : " To deliver cue 90 horse-power Combustion Boiler, 
steam gauges, etc., at pumping station, set up anck&cover the 
same to conform with boiler already set, connect uptake with 
present flue, to insure and keep in repair for one year, for 
the sum of $1,895." Foundations to be furnished by the 
town. To connect steam pipe, take down and replace panel 
in boiler room,. put in foundations, etc., will require 6200.00 
additional, or, in round numbers, an appropriation of #2,- 
100.00 will be required. 

There have been repaired 36 leaks on joints and 1 cracked 
pipe on the mains, and 2 leaks on service pipes. Notwith- 
standing the large number of leaks, the regular work of 
maintenance has been carried on at a reasonable expense. 
The following is a statement of expenses on this account :

spection, etc., 704 67
